Harvest Monday

September 23, 2013

This week, we harvested beans, tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, a baby cucumber, and eggs 🙂

September 21 13 - 0082 September 21 13 - 0090August 30 13 - 0022We are up to two eggs/day now. I’m sorry if it seems as though I am complaining all the time about our chickens and I am really excited we are getting eggs at all but…2 eggs!? From 19 hens!

Only two Australorps are laying. No Orpingtons yet. And we’re going on 29 weeks. Insane. I can’t believe I am still buying eggs from the store! Please tell me they aren’t going to moult before they lay even one egg!?

Are you still harvesting? Are you getting fall crops yet? Check out what everyone else is harvesting at Daphne’s Dandelions 🙂

    Try giving your chickens more calcium (leftover crushed eggshells or calcium-rich food), unusable kale to help them lay eggs. Very nice harvest otherwise.

    I don’t remember much about my chickens when I was younger, but I do remember giving them the crushed eggs shells being good for them like Jenny said.
    Your harvest looks nice!

    thx. they get crushed egg shells 🙂 and the eggs they do lay have hard shells so I think they’re good on calcium. my daughter actually found five today!!! one was under the roost and didn’t even break! Yay for woodshavings! 😀
